PMID:  2643187     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Penetrating and blunt injuries to the heart, ranging from cardiac concussion to rupture, are seen more and more frequently. Prompt diagnosis because of a high index of suspicion and timely, well-executed resuscitative efforts are rewarded by remarkable survival rates, even in the patients presenting in extremis, whereas hesitancy in diagnosis and therapeutic action militates against a successful result.
